Fan favorite Mr. Poopybutthole, of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s popular Adult Swim cartoon Rick and Morty, is getting his own comics miniseries starting in July. Rick and Morty: Lil' Poopy Superstar takes the scatologically named little guy on an epic adventure alongside Morty's older sister Summer Smith.

The Oni comic is written and drawn by Sarah Graley, of Our Super Adventure, and colored by Mildred Louis. The series features a number of variant covers, which we're unveiling here today. Each cover varies pretty wildly in style, which is fun to see. It's particularly interesting to how the more conventionally human Summer closely reflects each different artist's aesthetic, while the quintessentially cartoony Mr. Poopybutthole remains his odd-looking self.


Issue 1 Zen Monkey Variant by Alice Meichi Li


Here's the synopsis for issue #1:

Mr. Poopybutthole is in trouble, and he turns to the one person he can trust: Summer Smith! She's more than willing to help, but is he telling her the whole truth? ...Summer and Mr. Poopybutthole embark on their very own fantastic adventure across space, complete with jailbreaks, hijackings, and high school prom. Plus! Backup comics featuring good ol' Rick and Morty, illustrated by Marc Ellerby!

Issue 3 Variant by Molly Ostertag


Synopsis for issue #3:

Things take a turn for the worse when Summer and Mr. Poopybutthole get split up and Summer ends up in space jail! What's even up with space jail? What would Mr. Poopybutthole do? All we know is that Summer must break out! Armed only with a portal gun on low battery and Mr. Poopybutthole's bowler hat, she must come up with a plan - and without a moment to spare! She can't miss the school prom on Friday, after all.


Issue 4 Variant by Mildred Louis


Synopsis for issue #4:

Mr. Poopybutthole is up to his top hat in trouble! Kidnapped and tied to a chair, Mr. Poopybutthole must negotiate with his crooked agent! Otherwise he'll get forced into a contract of being a glamorous tv/movie star again, oOOo-wee, no thank you. It seems only Summer can save him now, but will she get to Mr. Poopybutthole in time before he is whisked away and put on a film set?



Issue 5 Variant by Emilee Denich
